How does one 'bide' on eBay?

In the above discussion about ugly watches, clearly you gentlemen are not acquainted with Roger Dubuis...

For the immediate, I think I am settled on the Speedy Pro. Now the Q is: 1969, 1980 (my birth year), or brand spanking new? open caseback (dont like the fact the inscription says "first and only watch worn on the moon" though.) ? sapphire or hesalite? decisions decisions... biggrin.gif

 

great choice, a perfect complement to your lovely JLC.
my speedy (c. 2006) just says 'the first watch worn on the moon'.
personally i'd always take the classic hesalite model.

These look very nice, what straps are those? Also, is this an Omega MilSub (if that term exists)?

New (to me) PAM244.

I know some people want nothing to do with a 40mm Panerai, but I'm really happy with this

Congrats theyare,

To me it seems like you made the right choice as the traditional 44mm would probably be too big for you. Looks great on your wrist.

The Omega is a vintage SM300. It's not a military issued example.



I made the strap myself. I needed some to fit the character of my vintage watches.
